eliotmiller/phylospacer: Tools for creating and plotting phyloclimate and phylomorphospaces
Version 0.1

This package takes, at a minimum, an ape-style phylogeny, a matrix of species' traits, and a matrix of reconstructed node traits. From these files it creates a phylospace object. This phylospace object can be modified by arguments to subset the phylogeny to a given node, including, if desired, all nodes between the node in question and the root of the tree. Points can also be jittered if desired, which can help to distinguish species with identical trait values. The phylospace object can then be plotted. A number of arguments can be modified here: whether or not to plot available climate or trait space behind the phylospace figure, whether to include species' and/or node labels in the figure, the amount by which to offset the species' labels, labels for the x and y axes (required), and x and y limits for the plot. Subsequent versions of this package will likely include statistical tests to be run on the phylospace object.
